RICHMOND, Va. (AP) Gov. Bob McDonnell has appointed 11 people to posts in his administration.
There's some familiar names among the people chosen Wednesday. For instance, McDonnell reappointed Patricia Wright as state school superintendent. Wright was named to the job by former Gov. Tim Kaine in July 2008.

The governor filled positions with Agriculture and Forestry, Planning and Budget, Public Safety, the Department of Juvenile Justice, Department of Emergency Management, Department of Fire Programs and the Department of Motor Vehicles.
McDonnell also named seven people to positions on six boards and commissions.
